EPHRATAH, N.Y. (AP) - Police will resume their search for the body of a 56-year-old man who is presumed to have drowned while kayaking in an upstate New York reservoir last weekend.

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office says the search for Daniel Smith of St. Johnsville started after a woman he was kayaking with reported that he had gone into the water around 8:15 p.m. Saturday while on the Donald G. Hill Reservoir in the town of Ephratah (yoo-FRA’-tuh), 45 miles northwest of Albany.

Officials say the woman had tried to help Smith but he nearly capsized her kayak. She got to shore and walked to the nearest house to call for help.

A search conducted Monday failed to find Smith’s body. Police say the search will resume Tuesday.
